We can make a difference in the education of your child with special needs
Wiscarson Law serves a wide range of needs for individuals with disabilities. For over twenty years, our focus has been special education law, and ensuring that students receive a free appropriate public education. We primarily help families resolve special education issues and conflicts by working collaboratively with school districts.

In response to clients’ needs and requests, we expanded our services to assist with other disability-related matters. In addition to special education, Wiscarson Law can advise and assist clients with guardianship matters and with obtaining accommodations in higher education.
How We Can Help
We work individually with each family to understand their specific needs
What Our Clients Are Saying
“We were fortunate to have the Wiscarson firm on our side after our public school district resisted accommodations for our child despite a clear diagnosis and supporting documents. I highly recommend them for anyone going through a similar situation. They are experts in education law and well respected.”
Diane gets things done
“We first hired Diane to work with the school district for a compromise accommodation to enable our daughter’s service dog to attend school with her. We hired her for her reputation of working with the district, and not in a confrontational manner. She worked to cut through bureaucracy and made it happen. She continues to make things happen whether we have needed to switch school/placement for my daughter, or get a reduced hour day with busing. I cannot recommend her more highly.”
“If you don’t believe in miracles as soon as you retain Diane, you will! She gave my family hope when we lost all. We were in desperate need of educational support for our son whom went from an A-B student to failing within 1 year. We were in constant communication with the school and doing our part at home, yet there was no change. The school said we’ve exhausted all supports we qualified for, and expected us to take their word. We were unaware of all the legal requirements schools have to adhere to until we retained Diane. Diane was always professional in every meeting, yet stern and ALWAYS spoke with a purpose. The second we retained her we saw a change in our sons support he was receiving, which increased his academic achievements. We’re proud to say our son is graduating high school this year and that accomplishment is in part of her advocacy. If you’re at the point of exhaustion and feel like there is no hope, she will give that to you in your first initial visit. When you think of your children their education is the best investment you can provide for their future. Diane was the best investment we made!”
“Once again, thanks for all the loving care and intelligence on the behalf of [our children]. We are very grateful.”
We simply cannot thank you and Lidia enough for educating and guiding us through all the steps required when putting these things in place. The manner in which you provided counsel was professional, timely, and in layman’s terms which we truly appreciate. Overall our experience with Wiscarson was excellent and we will certainly recommend your services to other families we know, who are about to begin the same process. Again, thank you so much.
“Thanks so much for your support and guidance with [our son’s] education. We would absolutely be lost without you!”
